UDP face a crisis of political confidence

The ruling United Democratic Party face a crisis of political confidence going into Friday’s meeting of the  House of Representatives. With numerous swirling scandals party members have chosen their words carefully around the press and the public. But the People’s United Party want to turn the screws on the UDP even more with a demonstration outside of the National Assembly. It recalls 2005 when the parties’ roles were reversed, but National Security Minister John Saldivar showed no fear on Thursday when told of the PUP’s plans.

“I don’t know that I should be concerned and this is politics and if they think they can mobilize, then, let them try it”.


Reporter:  “But you will recall that in 2005, while it was another scenario, that is how the agitations started with the your party Opposition, starting the protests at the Court of Independence”.

Hon. John Saldivar:   “We are not even close to 2005”.

The House will be reviewing several bills including the controversial Criminal Code (Amendment) (No.2) Bill, 2013.
